The current version of this app is written in CoffeeScript and is published in the npm package registry.

A simple Python command-line script I wrote to send SMS messages using Clickatell’s HTTP API. In addition it:

  • Records sent messages in a log and has command option to view log file.
  • Has command options to query the Clickatell account balance and the status of previously sent messages.
  • Configuration can include a list of phone numbers.
